COD Black Ops Zombie Cheats: Unlimited Death Machine and Three Weapons

By Alan Ng - Mar 8, 2011

Following on from our earlier article which informed you about a code to unlock all of the zombie maps on Call of Duty: Black Ops, we now have news of a glitch in the game which will allow you to have an unlimited Death Machine weapon.

For those of you who have played the Pentagon Zombie map called ‘Five’, you’ll know that there is a new power up in the game which will give you access to the Death Machine, the same beefy gatling gun from multiplayer mode.

It is meant to only last a short while, but we’ve seen a video on YouTube which shows you how to get it permanently – with UNLIMITED AMMO. Basically, once you get the power up for the first time, get killed by a zombie, and then have a teammate revive you.

Once you come back to life, you’ll see that not only will you have the Death Machine weapon in your inventory, you’ll still have your other two weapons, which means that you can now hold a total of three – pretty cool. Try it out now and see if it works for you, hopefully Treyarch won’t patch this up so we can all enjoy the Death Machine with unlimited ammo.

A note of importance though: Once you have the unlimited Death Machine, don’t pick up any more power-ups for the weapon, as this will replace your infinite one and you’ll have to repeat the process. Also, don’t let the mad scientist steal it from you during that part the game – experienced players will know what I’m talking about.

There is a video below showing this process. Let us know if this trick works for you or not.

      how do you do cheats

      • Morgan

        When your in your chair press “LT AND RT” both together at the same time and you break out of the chair. When your get out of the chair walk around and find a computer with a black screen. Go up to it and press and hold blue (like it will say). Enter these codes “doa” “3arc unlock”. doa will give you “dead ops arcade” (a zombie map) and 3arc unlock will give you another zombie map. For more codes go to google online and type in “call of duty black ops zombies cheats”

  • johnny

    wait,when i got the death machine and was supposed to get hit by a zombie on purpuse,my teamate revived me and the death machine then goes away???someone please help!

    • Martycod

      @johnny deos it not work iv not tyed it yet

    • matthew

      The way you do it is on call of the dead.
      You must have at least three people to do this.
      Grab a death machine, have your friend kill himself with a grenade, have another friend revive him and then you.
      While the death machine is your only gun, it has unlimited ammo and it will never go away.
      If you want to try it with me, add zeppelin1616 on xbox 360.

    I've spent about half an hour reading all these posts, and the one constant in all of it is that nobody knows how to spell properly. Lol!!! Maybe less time bitching about glitches and more time actually proof reading before you post is in order.

    how do u get infinite ammo on any gun

    • daniel

      how infinite ammo on any gun

  • Nick

    The glitch doesn’t work me and my friend tried it four times and nothing happens.

  • Fred

    WOW, I have the PS3 version and I have had zero issues with this game. The online connections are another thing but everyone is having that and they are working on a patch to fix it,
    @Billy- its called latency…mostly. But there are guys that just have super reflexes. I think the guns are very balanced and its now more of a personnel preference now. Just keep playing and you will get better. I'm not that great k/d = .95% but have been getting better the more I play, so just keep it up….

  • Billy

    Im playn multiplayer online @! and i get my ass whipped . I shoot them and they shoot me !! DEAD !! WTF !!!! Is there a trick to this shit – or do i just really suck bad !!lol

    • Avo

      You suck really bad, well, black ops is known for people sponging, just make sure they are dead before you stop shooting x

    • tony

      you may have a net lag if your connection is slow than your opponents he could be shooting you before you even know hes around on his screen he could be launching a killstreak when on your screen he just shot you (you being the first kill in his streak) so i would check that your system is the only thing active on your connection (no computers or other systems using bandwidth) or upgrade your connection to a faster speed. i have that problem too but i only have a 1mbps connection avg is 3 to 5 want to upgrade to 6. if i dont turn off my wifes laptop i'll timeout constantly.

    • joe

      y do u have a prob…?this game is awsome?HAVE FUN………..?

      yu suck

  • Camryn

    power in the first level is on the stage. I always go through the door at the top of the stairs in the beginning and work my way through to the stage. The power is on the wall next to the M16 that you can buy. From there, a good camping spot with 3-4 people is to buy doors from the stage to outside (the first door being right next to the M16 as well) and then going through the alley and buying the door leading inside, but not the next door, which leads back to the beginning. With 3 people, you can have one inside the room guarding the 2 windows by standing at the window closer to the door to go outside, and the other 2 people outside at the bottom of or on the stairs with one person guarding the window behind you while supporting the other. Who guards what is up to you. With 4 people, you can either have 2 people inside guarding the windows (1 each), or have 1 person inside guarding both windows, thus being able to have 3 people outside. Again, the choice is up to you. Another strategy is to not buy the door inside at the end of the alley way, have 1 person guard the back window behind you guys, and 2 or 3 people cover the front where all the zombies are coming. I find this strategy to actually be more difficult, as it doesn't spread out the zombies as much, so more come straight at you from the front, making it harder to defend. The number of zombies that go inside the building to the windows is somewhat small, but significant.

    • Nolan Harvey420

      Do u know cheats of how to get Unlimted ammo,Super jump,Infinte health

  • Crazyblondekilla86

    Where do you go to turn on the power in the first level? I can't find it

    • ggaaggee

      you go out side

    • Nate_Dogg618 =PSN

      no you dont go out side.when you start off the level, you go under the stairs open that door then go to the alley then go to the gate then when your upstairs go to the door by the lockers then go down the stairs STOP! go through the doorway and look on the wall to your right. there should be a switch.thats the power.BUT! i remind you if you turn it on you have these ugly little faggots comin after you and the games harder.

  • sam

    is it possible to disable the cheat —- just out of interest—- if so how

    • cody

      pick up the death machine power up again when a zombie drops it, and the death machine will run like normal

  • beastiedesigns

    to get under the tank you just lie down lol

    its the bit before that which got on my nerves

    you hold back the VC, and get slaughtered many times before you go online and find out what to do
    at no point do they tell you the objective or how to complete the level, and the enemy keeps on coming, so its just a matter of time before you die

    when i found out it was easy

  • bob

    Dave – Out of interest what verions of the PS3 do you have.
    Origianl (plays ps2)
    Next one (doesn't play ps2)
    The next one.
    The slim
    The new slim.
    There might be more.

    I am on 2. Old carpet cleaner looking machine that doesn't play ps2.
    Bugs central – PS3 crashes, black screen of death, and YELLOW screen of death – no one on me.

    Major bug when you have to open the door with woods. Press square – Ah machine lock up. 5 attempts before the machien didnt crash – He to hard-reboot each time.

    Developers – Test your code. Like being at work!

  • gun

    if you lie down they cant kill you

  • dave

    what are you on about? crawl under a tank?? ive completed this game and don't remember having to do that? ..or maybe it wasnt at all a problem and i just whizzed past it without knowing ive done it?

    Anyway – i didnt find one flaw in this epic game.. PS3 by the way.

    • Stephen

      have you played multiplayer?
      it's shitty as fuck. i'm pretty good and can't complain about the gameplay itself, but the levels are shit, most levels have no sniper positions, they will sometimes put you on a level with 16 people thats too big for 8 people, and the no good sniper rifles whatsoever.
      the zombie levels are fun, and a few of the online features are coll, but overall this game is a real letdown in comparison to MW2.

      • alex

        dude this game is alsome. and there is like 12 sniper maps retard.

    • Staesh

      True ….. True ….. All true! Brilliant game

  • bob

    No that doesn't actually quite work – You need to duck, press L3 and push left stick forward.
    Not even sure that will work you. Just pretend you are playing old street fighter – whack all those buttons eventually you may get low enough.

    Such a rubbish game.

    • luke

      lol u hold O to go prone, the game tells u this many times

  • bob


    Press the left cross pad button, then you can press O again and duck lower.


    Enjoy – If that is at all possible.

  • bob

    Yes I have just thought about that – If people don't have an internet connection then not likely to read my post – Bless my cotton socks 🙂

    Anyway – Just installed update, can I get passed the tank now.


    WTF – Am i really that rubbish?

    • luke


  • bob

    PS3 Owners NOTE:
    If you have not got an internet connection (I'm sure you all do) then you will not be able to proceed past the begining of Vietnam level.

    I assume this is the same for everyone and I am only assuming the update that is available addresses the issue.

    The issue being. I can't get under the TANK!

    The fact an update is available so soon really shows how little the games was tested and adds to an ever growing list of failures.

    I am out principle goign to ring head office of Sainsburys tomorrow and again demand a refund. I am also going to ring Trading Standards and Citizens Advice to see what can be regarding regunds.

    • Neil

      Just a few thoughts about Bobs post

      1.Its hard to read this without having an internet connection, i tried looking up this page on my fridge but it didnt work, i currently have a friend trying to read this page via his waffles but thats not looking too good either.

      2. Grammar needs a little work don't you think?

      3. Trading Standards, Citizens Advice and Sainsburys? thats a little OTT

      And Finally take it to the supermarket tell them the disc has a fault and they will replace it.

        Just 1 thought about your post…

        1. You bought your game from a supermarket…? I don’t know about you but I buy food and vegies from a supermarket, not games.

        • Thisguyisanoob

          Not if you buy it at walmart!! It has it all

    • Anon

      Sorry but that was just frieken retarded.

      There are more bugs in MW2 at this very moment and it has been out for ages.
